St. Joseph Healthcare's Volunteer Department
The St. Joseph Hospital Volunteer Department assists in placing volunteers throughout the hospital in various capacities. Volunteers donate countless hours of service delivering mail and flowers, performing clerical duties and staffing the Front Desk area.
Volunteers of all ages and experience levels are welcome to consider joining in the service to our community.
